After realizing on Apr 8 that he had no hope to beat Biden, who was too far ahead, Sanders ended his presidential bid.
But Biden still needed to bring unity to the Democratic Party against Republican President Donald Trump in the fall.
Biden, who faced skepticism from many younger progressive voters, was greatly encouraged by Sanders' endorsement and backing.
But it was not clarified by Sanders on Monday if he would continue to fight for delegates at state conventions around the country.
With his biggest policy to defeat Trump, Sanders cited ongoing work between the two camps on several policy matters as a reason for the endorsement
"We've got to make Trump a one-term president," Sanders said. "I will do all that I can to make that happen."
